Kentucky Wildcats: Images of Lexington Riot After Final Four Win over Louisville

An exciting University of Kentucky win over rival Louisville took an ugly turn. According to Mike Winn of The Courier-Journal:

Post-game revelry in Lexington turned to violence and fire-setting as University of Kentucky fans swarmed the streets surrounding campus, prompting police in riot gear to move in.

This is the sort of bone-headed act from a passionate fan base that brings out the worst in sports. A sensational win that launched Kentucky into the National Championship is being overshadowed by the foolish antics of a mob. Twitter has exploded with images capturing the insanity.

Andrew Mills Tweeted this picture, showing the mob of people and fire, which every self-respecting riot needs.

Pete Thamel indicated early reports of disarray:

I hope authorities are able to gain control over a situation that has clearly gotten absurdly out of hand.
